2K Sports have released another new NBA’s Greatest starting lineups screenshot, this time highlighting Julius Erving’s featured game between the 1985 Sixers and Bucks.
Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below or here in the Forum. 2K have been releasing two NBA’s Greatest screenshots per weekend over the past few weeks, so another one should be coming tomorrow.
After a week of screenshots highlighting some of the additions to My Player mode in NBA 2K12, producer Erick Boenisch has provided us with the fifth Developer Insight which goes into great detail about what we can expect of the mode in terms of new features and improvements to existing ones. Erick explains how you progress through the mode from the Rookie Showcase through to a possible Hall of Fame induction and everything in between, including another rundown of the pre-Draft interviews, mock Draft and the 2011 Draft itself, contract negotiations and paychecks that can be spent on increasing ratings and adding new dunk packages.
Of note, Erick also mentions that NBA 2K12’s My Player will feature “Key Games”, so you won’t have to play each and every game in the season but rather elect to play games that feature key matchups, rival teams or have playoff implications, with stats from simulated games still counting towards the Hall of Fame goals. He also touches upon the expanded endorsements, player abilities, dynamic goals, press conferences, drills, playcalling and the starting rating. Finally, we get a teaser of some Association information as Erick mentions that Adam Silver was brought in to record audio for the second round of the Draft, hinting that he and David Stern will be featured during the Draft in Association as well as My Player. It’s well worth checking out, give it a read and join in the discussion here in the Forum.
Ronnie has also mentioned on Twitter that the next week and a half will be all about gameplay, including a word from Mike Wang.
EA Sports are beginning to unveil more of the players that will be included on each team’s roster in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, posting two new screenshots on the official Facebook page featuring Chauncey Billups and Nate Robinson.
To further promote all the legends and classic teams in NBA 2K12, 2K Sports have launched the NBA 2K Debate which invites fans to pick one of the teams in the game, create a video explaining why you believe it’s the greatest team of all-time, upload it to YouTube and submit it via the NBA 2K Debate website. 2K themselves tip the debate off with none other than Michael Jordan.
Talk about the video and your pick in the debate in this thread. For anyone creating videos for the debate, feel free to share them as well.
The final screenshot of the week leading into the My Player Insight (which will be posted in a couple of hours) showcases the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
The description for the photo states that you can write your own speech, choosing who you thank for your career and who you omit. Ronnie 2K said that his player retired after 17 years in the league and won a championship with Melo and Amare after being traded to the Knicks. You can discuss all of the screenshot teasers of the week in the Forum and be sure to check this space in a few hours for the full My Player Insight.
Before my 10 AM My Player post, a couple admin things. Online Insight will be post demo, demo will be like last year, 7-14 days prelaunch
Last My Player screen tomorrow at 8 AM PST. Insight at 12 PM PST.
So it seems we can expect the demo to come out from mid-September onwards, though probably no earlier than the 22nd. Tomorrow’s Developer Insight should give us a detailed rundown of what to expect in My Player, with the screenshot likely being another glimpse at Ronnie’s career to date.
CSNWashington.com has posted a video preview of NBA 2K12 featuring gameplay footage which shows off a game between the Lakers and Wizards, the 1965 Celtics taking on their rival Lakers and the Heat squaring off against the Mavericks.
The NBA 2K Facebook released two more screenshots with information today. First up we have a shoe advertisement.
The description teased that you can create your own shoe, name it, and can be lobbied by multiple shoe companies for you endorsement. Next we have TV Commercials.
Cool stuff indeed. Check out all the My Player Week updates and discuss in the Forum, and be sure to check this space tomorrow when the My Player Insight is posted.
Possibly recognizing the popularity of custom My Player saves that let you play as NBA players, USA Today revealed in today’s preview that you can take any current NBA player into the game’s Creating a Legend mode. I’m going to assume that we can take any player in the roster into that mode considering it isn’t restricted to the Legends.
The preview also talked about My Player’s bi-weekly paychecks which can be spent on skill points, camps with legends, or bowling with teammates. On top of that, it covers the pre-draft recruiting process as well as more redundant information on the Legends mode.
Our Wiki has once again been hit hard by spambots recently, so I’ve put a few new measures in place that should hopefully prevent them from creating pages with spam links and inappropriate content. Additionally, we currently do not allow anonymous users to create pages and accounts must now be at least four days old for registered users to create pages. However, anonymous and registers users alike can edit a majority of the pages in the Wiki, with only a few select pages being locked to preserve resources and deter would-be vandals. As I’ve mentioned before, our aim is to create the ultimate resource for basketball video games, so we invite you to jump in and help us expand our articles!
